    1 Introduction

    This guide outlines the required steps for moving data from a source MDM repository to a destination MDM

    repository using the following MDM standard tools:

    MDM Console (at least SP10)

    MDM Syndicator Tool (at least SP10)

    MDM Import Manager (at least SP10).

    More Information

    See the following guides:

    MDM Syndicator Reference Guide

    MDM Import Manager Reference Guide.

    1.1 Attributes to be Migrated

    Prepare a list of attributes to be migrated to a new structure. This list depends on the modules that you want to

    implement in the system. After the migration is confirmed to be successful and the data is in the destination

    structure, it is recommended that you remove the source attribute.

    1.2 Prepare the Destination Data Structures in the Repository

    Deploy the modules to create the data structures in the MDM repository. This step is necessary for data

    migration. Note that we consider the source and the destination to be the same in the MDM repository. For new

    customers the source is the initial repository.

    After this step, data is available in the existing old structure and the new data structures are deployed but empty.

    Export Existing Data

    2 Export Existing Data

    A definition.xsd is necessary for the MDM Syndicator Tool to export data in a structured way. It can be generated

    from the repository definition through MDM Java API or can be created manually. As for the Java API, see the

    MDM Java API documentation at http://help.sap.com/javadocs/mdm71/.

    For simple cases manual creation is recommended.

    The xsd should list the attributes that are affected by the migration in the following syntax:

    Syntax

    For complex types it is (please see example in TMData.xsd attached):

    For multi-language fields:
